Delegation is one of those important topics because any time you talk to somebody who's successful and you ask “How do you do it all?”
Well, usually their first response back is, “I don't do it all.” Right?
They choose what to work on and they delegate the rest. That's why I want you to tap into delegation today, so let's do one small activity.
I want you to think about something that you hate doing, something on your plate – either work or home, something that you hate doing and despise.
You don't look forward to it all but you feel like I have to do this. Okay, that one task, write that down put it below and the comments so you can share and see that we all have similar tasks we don't like to do. Take that task and I want you to think about how you can delegate it in two ways.
I want you to think about the time it takes you to do it and the value for that.
So, the time that it takes. You can do this in a couple ways. You can think about what's your hourly rate right for things you do, things people pay you to do. Even if you're making something like $10 an hour if it takes you five hours to do a task, you're already talking about $50 worth of your time. There's a very ratio aspect to that of time for money, right? But there's also value.
So when you outsource or you delegate something to somebody else, there’s a really inherent joy in being able to delegate it and you feel really good when you know you're not the one that has to do it and everybody has experienced this in their lives.
When you go out to eat at a restaurant, when you are not the one making the meal and you have this ambiance of the restaurant and the silver plate comes to you and you're like, “Oh, this tastes so good. This was a great experience.” When you break it down of “I could have made this at home for $5” or “I spent the $25 to enjoy the eating out experience,” there's inherent value that goes with that instead of just the cost breakdown.
Think about both your time and your value – the joy you're going to experience when you delegate that thing that you really hate on your list.
And so, if you're stuck on “I don't know how to delegate this,” there’s the do-it-yourself option, trying to figure it out. I help clients one-on-one with finding the time and breaking down steps to make sure that you're figuring out what you need to delegate and how to do it.
But there's also a middle option that I want to share with you today.
